Hey y'all

Just wanted to say hi. It's been quite a while! I quit my job as an interpreter to begin teaching English in ASL to underprepared deaf college students (also writing all the curriculum), which was the best job I'd ever had. Unfortunately, I've now become disabled by chronic illness, and had to quit teaching and stop working altogether.

My wonderful husband (five years married last month, ten years together next month!) is now working for Blizzard -- for you WoW/Diablo/Starcraft fans -- and we've moved to Orange County. I was thinking of everyone here when I ran across Richard Roehm in the comments on a newspaper story about disability. I really love it where we're living, but the problem is that deaf events here are dominated by the OCDAC! And unfortunately, I no longer have the capacity to drive to events further away and then spend more than 15 minutes there before driving back. Lame! :dizzy:

Anyway, hope everyone's doing well.

Yes, it has been quite a while. Welcome back! :wave:

I'm sorry that you had to quit the teaching job. It sounds like you really enjoyed it, and I know it was a much needed class at the college.

I hope that your health holds up, and that we see more of your posts here. :)

Hey, just curious. Is your avatar from City of Heroes? I used to love that game.
